B&w panorama 2 soundbar review

The shorter focal lengths are best for viewing Solar System phenomena and galaxies, while the longer focal lengths are better for open clusters and extended nebulae, as for other eyepiece sets.
However, this isn’t a hard and fast law, and there’s a lot of fun to be had viewing galaxies in their natural environment in a wide-field setting, just as there’s always something magical about observing the entire quarter Moon alone in space.
Even with the rubber eye cups folded up, eye positioning was a little difficult at first, but once we got the hang of it, we were able to see the entire field of view with close inspection, though the field stop was not especially distinct.
We could barely see the field edge while wearing spectacles with the rubber eye cup folded down because of the generous eye relief of the 10mm, 15mm, and 21mm lenses, but we failed to do so with the 5mm eyepiece.
The magnification of a telescope is determined by its focal length (magnification = focal length of telescope/focal length of eyepiece), and the AFOV defines the true field of view observed based on magnification (true field of view = AFOV/magnification).

You won’t know how much you listen to TV with your ears until you upgrade from the built-in speakers to a high-end dedicated audio system like the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 2. The difference between the factory-installed sound on a high-end Panasonic TV and the B&W system is astounding. To begin, you hear sound that is as flat as the screen. And, when you watch the beginning of Ratatouille on Blu-ray, you’re immediately engulfed in a torrential downpour. The frantic aerial chase in The Fifth Element is first fascinating, then thrilling. The effect of black-and-white film isn’t limited to dramatic viewing. The sound of a crowd roaring at a game excites, the sound of an intruder approaching from behind startles in a video game, and musical performances soar.
The Panorama 2 soundbar from top-tier speaker manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins is a room-filling solution in a sleek, elegant box, combining simplicity in design and configuration with stirring audio quality. The Panorama 2 is a single unit—roughly 43 inches wide—that can live above or below your TV, unlike surround-sound systems with several separate speakers. Surround-sound effects are created by bouncing digitally processed audio off the walls around you. The most persuasive directional audio is produced in a small space or from a room’s corner. You get visibility and heft in a larger area, but not the impression that a helicopter zooming in on the screen’s right is about to take off from that side of the room.

The Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 2 Soundbar brings truly immersive high-quality sound to your TV from a single, discreet speaker, adding a new dimension to home entertainment. You won’t believe how much a single box can change things.
The drive units in the Panorama 2 are designed to spread sound as widely as possible. This huge audio “sweet spot” allows the entire family to enjoy crystal-clear sound. Panorama 2’s movies and music now sound better than you ever hoped they could. All of this from a single, unobtrusive loudspeaker device.
We assume that speakers should not only sound great, but also be simple to set up and use. As a result, installing Panorama 2 is as simple as plugging it in. Panorama 2 has the new HDMI compatibility (three inputs and one output) to connect to the widest range of televisions, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, and games consoles in the fastest, simplest, and highest-quality way possible.
Simply ask the engineers who create the sound for movies if Bowers & Wilkins understands movie sound. Hollywood puts music and sound to blockbuster movies in the control rooms of London’s Abbey Road Studios and California’s Skywalker Sound. They are most likely the world’s most sophisticated multi-channel listening environments. Naturally, they both use the Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series, the world’s most sophisticated reference speakers.

We’re testing the Bowers & Wilkins Panorama 2 soundbar this week, which includes an integrated subwoofer, HDMI ARC, virtual surround sound, six amplifiers, and nine drivers. Both Dolby and DTS audio formats are supported by the Panorama 2. Is it even possible to get excellent British home cinema sound for less than 1000 pounds?
Who hasn’t fantasized about a soundbar capable of competing with an entire speaker system? Hi-fi experts have been attempting to piece together the pieces of this difficult puzzle for years. There are many explanations why it is so difficult to crack. First, how about the soundbar’s small size? Since the space is wide but not especially tall or deep, only small drivers can be used. Small drivers, on the other hand, are unlikely to produce natural-sounding bass and are only rarely capable of producing a solid soundstage due to their limited emissive surface. Furthermore, to achieve a convincing surround effect, sound must appear to come from behind the listener. In a nutshell, it’s very difficult.
